"A rare, fascinating personality emerges in Donald B. Cole's biography of Amos Kendall (1789-1869), the reputed intellectual engine behind Andrew Jackson's administration and an influential figure in the transformation of young America from an agrarian republic to a capitalist democracy. After helping Jackson win the election of 1828, Kendall became the president's chief adviser - speech writer, postmaster general, and author of the famous veto of the bill to recharter the Bank of the United States

The presidency of Andrew Jackson by Donald B Cole( Book )

12 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1829 Andrew Jackson arrived in Washington in a carriage. Eight years and two turbulent presidential terms later, he left on a train. Those years, among the most prosperous in American history, saw America transformed not only by growth in transportation but by the expansion of the market economy and the formation of the mass political party. Jackson's ambivalence--and that of his followers--toward the new politics and the new economy is the story of this book."--Publisher

Vindicating Andrew Jackson : the 1828 election and the rise of the two-party system by Donald B Cole( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the publisher. The presidential election of 1828 is one of the most compelling stories in American history: Andrew Jackson, hero of the Battle of New Orleans and man of the people, bounced back from his controversial loss four years earlier to unseat John Quincy Adams in a campaign notorious for its mudslinging. With his victory, the torch was effectively passed from the founding fathers to the people. This study of Jackson's election separates myth from reality to explain why it had such an impact on present-day American politics. Featuring parades and public participation to a greater degree than had previously been seen, the campaign itself first centered on two key policy issues: tariffs and republicanism. But as Donald Cole shows, the major theme turned out to be what Adams scornfully called "electioneering": the rise of mass political parties and the origins of a two-party system, built from the top down, whose leaders were willing to spend unprecedented time and money to achieve victory. Cole's innovative study examines the election at the local and state, as well as the national, levels, focusing on New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, and Virginia to provide a social, economic, and political cross section of 1828 America. He describes how the Jacksonians were better organized, paid more attention to detail, and recruited a broader range of workers{8212}especially state-level party leaders and newspaper editors who were invaluable for raising funds, publicizing party dogma, and smearing the opposition. The Jacksonians also outdid the Adams supporters in zealotry, violence of language, and the overwhelming force of their campaigning and succeeded inpainting their opponents as aristocratic, class conscious, and undemocratic. Tracing interpretations of this election from James Parton's classic 1860 biography of Jackson to recent revisionist accounts attacking Old Hickory for his undemocratic treatment of blacks, Indians, and women, Cole argues that this famous election did not really bring democracy to America as touted{8212}because it was democracy that enabled Jackson to win

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays deals with teaching secondary school students who are academically gifted. These students have an unusual capacity to accomplish something; they have aptitude in some special areas. They have artistic or physical skills, or they are talented verbally, linguistically, or mathematically. The essays have a broad application, for many of the described modes of teaching are effective also for the less talented. The essays cover distinct subject areas and are arranged thematically. In Part I, essays stress the importance of the students in educating the talented. Part ii emphasizes the importance of content and subject matter. Part iii describes the use of inductive strategies and calls for teaching the process of investigation and discovery learning. In Part iv, teaching techniques are described in detail, and the necessity of allowing talented students to move rapidly is emphasized. Three essays are presented in the final section that focus on educating the whole student, not just training the mind or body. All of the essays stress the importance of student participation, both individually and as a group. In this student-centered education, students learn best if the teaching is open-ended and is a sophisticated blend of inductive and deductive processes. A number of the essays explore detailed techniques for teaching a given discipline. The basic philosophy expressed is that of a holistic education that deals with students morally as well as intellectually. (Jd)

Preparation of Secondary-School History Teachers. Third Edition Revised by Donald B Cole( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This document is addressed to individuals concerned with the preparation of history teachers at the secondary-school level. The role of history is to provide a critical approach to the past, not simply to store and transmit the data society wants remembered. In order to produce effective teachers, a program of preparation depends, in part, upon the selection of individuals who possess the intellectual potential for becoming good history teachers. High school and college teachers should play a more active role in encouraging some individuals to become teachers while discouraging others. A model four-year undergraduate program for the preparation of secondary-school history teachers is suggested. A teacher's general educational background, approximately one-third of the program, should include courses in the general areas of language, literature, the arts, philosophy, mathematics, natural science, history, religion, social and behavioral science. Studies in history and closely-related disciplines should comprise about one-half of the program. It is recommended that a prospective history teacher take an undergraduate major in history. He/she should take at least 27 semester hours in subjects closely related to history, preferably concentrated in one humanistic and one social or behavioral science discipline. Several conceptions of teacher training are discussed as the final one-sixth component of the program. Ideally, teacher education should be spread over five years in programs such as a Master of Arts in Teaching program. Supplementary programs of preparation are discussed and cooperation/coordination of effort between secondary and college history teachers is recommended. (Gea)
